FREMONT, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Terra State Community College students with aspirations of pursuing a bachelor's degree now will be able to continue their academic pursuits near home through Ohio University, after the two schools signed a partnership agreement this month.
As a result of the new partnership, Terra students will be afforded the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree by completing part of their higher education on Terra State's campus for up to three years, and then the remainder of academic courses at Ohio University. The partnership includes an option of earning a degree through distance learning, so students may remain in Fremont while attending OU.
The two academic institutions announced their new partnership at a signing ceremony on Terra's campus last week.
"Terra State is excited to partner with Ohio University in offering our students the opportunity to continue their education and complete their bachelor's degree from one of Ohio's premiere institutions of learning," said Terra President Dr. Jerome Webster. "With their strong academic programs and committed and dedicated faculty and staff, we at Terra State could not be more pleased to join forces in extending educational opportunities for students with OU. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership that benefits our shared students."
The collaboration between Terra and OU will offer individuals who have earned an associate degree in a technical field from Terra an opportunity to complete a bachelor's degree from Ohio University without leaving the region. Following completion of articulation agreements between the institutions, two degree programs are expected to be offered initially as part of the agreement.
Terra students who have completed an associate degree in a criminal justice area may earn a Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree. Graduates of Terra's Registered Nursing program will be able to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing through a program designed with working nurses in mind. The institutions anticipate adding other program options in the future.
While pursuing their bachelor's degrees, students will have the option of taking some of the required academic courses from Terra while they take others from OU.
"We are pleased to be able to offer students whose work and family circumstances prevent them from attending classes at Ohio University's Athens campus the opportunity to experience the academic excellence that is a hallmark of our bachelor's degree programs," said Deb Gearhart, OU Vice Provost for eLearning and Strategic Partnerships. "Access and affordability are keys for students seeking a quality higher education experience and this partnership offers those features, while providing options for technical degree graduates to advance their education."
In addition to convenience, the new programs will provide affordable options for students who may not desire or be able to relocate by offering a considerable savings on the cost of tuition toward a bachelor's degree. Students in the programs will pay the Terra tuition for any courses taken on their campus and only $240 per credit hour for courses taken online from OU (by Ohio residents). The partnership also streamlines transfer of credits, student services and financial aid activities for students in the program, facilitating the ability to move easily between the two institutions' systems.
